Housing and support services, offering pathways out of homelessness.
We believe people deserve a warm bed for the night.
Whatever their age. Whatever their circumstance.
Year-Round Family Shelters
Our family shelters offer comfortable, home-like environments for parents and children. We provide each family with a room and meals for up to six months. Our case management services are designed to help families find and secure permanent housing, and to develop the means to support themselves in a home of their own.
Family shelters are located in Berkshire and Franklin counties:
- Greenfield Family Inn
- Days Inn in Greenfield
- Our Friends’ House in Pittsfield
- We also have more than 20 apartments in Pittsfield and Greenfield to provide temporary housing for families until they can find a place of their own.
Year-Round Shelter for Adults
Our year-round shelter for adults provide housing, meals, showers, toiletries, and clothing for individuals experiencing homelessness.
Admission to, and continuing to stay at the shelter, is based on guests’ ability to remain safe and to assure the safety of others. Though sobriety is not required, guests may not use alcohol or drugs in the shelter, other than medications that have been prescribed for them.
All guests share in cooking, cleaning, and other household tasks during their stay at the shelter. They may also be working on increasing their income via job searches and/or applying for entitlements; on housing searches/housing applications; beginning a new job or going back to school; and on connecting with needed rehabilitative, medical, counseling, recovery, or other services. Onsite shelter staff often connect guests to case management and other support offered through our Resource Center.
Our year-round shelter for adults is located at 21 Pearl Street in Pittsfield.
